# Diffraction of Light: Diffraction Grating

1. A diffraction grating with 2.10E3 slits per centimeter is used to measure the wavelengths emitted by hydrogen gas.

At what angles in the first-order spectrum would you expect to find the two violet lines of wavelengths 434 nm

and 410 nm?

(a) At what angle in the first-order spectrum would you expect to find the first violet line of wavelengths

434 nm?

(b) At what angle in the first-order spectrum would you expect to find the second violet line of

wavelength 410 nm?

2. What is the longest wavelength that can be observed in the fifth-order (m=5) spectrum using a diffraction grating with

3.60E3 slits per centimeter? (Unit: nm)

All answers must have three significant digits unless otherwise specified.
